Deeds

The Assessment Office does not prepare deeds.  You need to retain an attorney to have a deed prepared or modified.  We cannot change, add or delete an owner's name from our records unless there is a recorded deed evidencing that change.

As a service to the taxpayers, the Town has made a diligent attempt to maintain and preserve deeds, some of which date back to the 1600’s.

Copies of deeds may be available and can be provided to the owner of the property ONLY for a fee of $.25 per page.  Please note that we may or may not have some of the older historic deeds.

For all others, copies of deeds may be obtained through:

Westchester County Clerk's Office
Land Records Division
110 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
White Plains, NY 10601

(914) 995-3080

The County Clerk's website indicates:

To search for a land document, visit Westchester Records Online to determine whether the document you are searching for is recorded in the Office of the Westchester County Clerk.  If the document is recorded in our office and you wish to obtain a copy of it, you can pay a daily user fee to view it online, visit our office, or request a copy of the document  by mail.

Curbside Recycling Rules

Villages in the Town of Rye have “dual-stream recycling.” This means paper waste (paper, magazines, newspapers, boxes, etc.) must be placed separate from commingled waste (hard plastic containers, metal cans and foil, glass, and cartons).
